Grief is the death of something. We associate grief with the death of a loved one but grief takes many forms. A break up is the death of a relationship.
A divorce is the death of a marriage. A job loss is the death of a career. An estrangement is the death of a relationship. In all these scenarios we have lost someone or something and it’s important we grieve the loss so we can heal from it.
The whole area of grief is interconnected with divorce, relationship break-up and any of life’s other personal losses including the loss of a much-loved family pet. If you are suffering with the pain of losing a loved one and feeling lost or uncertain about your future you are not alone. I am able to support you.
Before our initial session we will have had a Relationship Clarity Consultation (RCC) (for which see the separate listing ) where we will have discussed your specific circumstances, where you are in your grief process, we will also have addressed any questions or concerns you may have had.
Your situation may have changed since our RCC and we will work on any issues or feelings that are coming up for you for which you need the most support at the time of the initial session. Grief is different for everyone and the session is completely tailored to your requirements.
This is an in-depth session where I will hold space for you and listen to your story and assist you emotionally and practically where appropriate. It is all about witnessing your grief and meeting you where you are and supporting you, informing you and guiding you.
Grief comes with a rollercoaster of emotions and the range of emotions will be different for everyone. There is no timeline for grief. It is a process and there is no quick fix, but being able to trust and express your feelings in a neutral space is key to healing as we have to feel to heal.
This is very much a bespoke session depending on your circumstances – the type of grief and what stage you are in your grief..
The loss of a loved one is the most stressful life event any of us have to face. Nothing prepares us for the loss and the range of emotions we feel which can be extremely intense and overwhelming. The level of grief we feel is commensurate with the depth of feeling we have for the person we have lost.
It takes time to process the range of emotions we experience. Since there is no timeline for grief we have to give ourselves permission to grieve fully. There are various types of grief, depending upon the circumstances, and everybody’s situation and experience of grief will be different as we are all unique and process grief differently.
As a Certified Grief Educator I am committed to providing you the highest level of grief support through education, experience, and insights into the often unacknowledged rocky terrain of grief.
Duration of the session: 90 minutes
